SpaceLab masters student Wei-Yu Louis Feng received awards at the Space Generation Advisory Congress (SGAC) and International Astronautical Congress (IAC), both held in Guadalajara, Mexico in late September 2016. His first award was a scholarship from SSPI to attend the SSPI Satellite Futures Workshop at the Space Generation Advisory Congress (SGAC), which was held in the weekend preceding the IAC 2016. He then went on to win the First Prize in the IAF International Student Workshop during the IAC 2016 for his presentation on his masters research project on the use of shape memory alloys for space applications in the field of active debris removal.
